Is there a category "Biometric Devices" such that one could enumerate and list all the biometric devices attached to a system, something like listing all video and audio devices.

Here is a way to retrieve all sound devices:

ManagementObjectSearcher objSearcher = new ManagementObjectSearcher(
           "SELECT * FROM Win32_SoundDevice");

ManagementObjectCollection objCollection = objSearcher.Get();

foreach (ManagementObject obj in objCollection)
  foreach (PropertyData property in obj.Properties)
    Console.Out.WriteLine(String.Format("{0}:{1}", property.Name, property.Value));
